These are some new Springtime additions.
A chambray dress from Michiko, which has a ruched waist and sweet little detailing on the sleeve – it reminds me of a kind of blue collar day dress and I feel like a cowgirl in it. Michiko is a really strange shop and I usually don’t even venture inside, especially because I think it is overpriced (as was this dress…) but I saw it in the window, tried it on and prayed my credit card would go through. It did.
(The boots are from Country Road and have seen many a dance floor; the scarf is vintage, bought in Grahamstown, and it is covered in Parisian tourist attractions like the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Elysees)
A Topshop delivery that arrived just in time for Spring – a cream peach skin frock with bow detail at each shoulder. It’s a size too big but very luxe. I hemmed it quite short so that I can wear it out at night too.
My personal favourite, another Topshop delivery… it’s the palest grey silk with a grosgrain ribbon at the waist and an extra flouncy hemline.
In the online catalogue it was called the ‘Paris Flippy Skirt’… And with that, I was sold.
